These poems explore freely the familiar ground of the Gospels in the New Testament, often from an odd angle or unexpected point of view. Some are grounded in the author's sense of the biblical present, others in the author's or an imagined speaker's present; all are accompanied by a triggering Scripture reference to provide background for the curious or a focus for further reflection. As stated in the author's preface, ""These are poems, not doctrinal or evangelistic treatises. Their task . . . is to work and wear well as poems.
